Scribbling The Cat
Scribbling the Cat - Travels with an African Soldier
New York: The Penguin Press, 1984.
Fuller's raw portrait of her African childhood, Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight, is continued here in some form, as she travels with the war-scarred survivors who make up members of the continent's displaced, white population.
Brilliant, violent and deeply adrift, she attempts to understand these men who still feel they need to find a place in modern Africa.
